I am 65 and have taken medication for a long time for BPH. Dr. Butler performed a Urolift procedure on me back in May of this year. It has been virtually life changing, allowing me to actually sleep long enough to achieve REM sleep. We went this past Friday to Carlsbad's TGIF concerts in the park and even after drinking some water and a couple of beers I used to restroom on the way out of the park. I would recommend Dr. Butler to anyone!!

My father was misdiagnosed by Dr butler and was under his supervion for years and he never found his bladder cancer. I went for a second opinion to find out he had an aggressive form of bladder cancer that wasn't diagnosed in time. He had to have both his prostate and bladder removed. Dr Butler is careless and was never able to diagnose his sysmptoms properly and made him do innessary tests none of which showed that my father had cancer.

Dr. Butler is a very knowledgeable and experienced doctor, and his people skills are outstanding. He cares about his patients and stays well on time with his appointments. I think he is great!

Was pretty scared about having a kidney stone removed because it was stuck in the ureter. Went perfectly with Dr. Butler reassuring me about all aspects of surgery. After surgery was not as awful as I thought - just took a lot out of me with the stent in for almost two weeks. Removal was absolutely painless; totally not worth all the worrying!
